Listen up and mark your calendar. Lara Land of Land Yoga will be hosting a very special event in Harlem on March 18th called “Taste Of India.”
Join us for a glamorous Bollywood night. Ticket includes two hours of Indian inspired cocktails, food, and music at Ginny’s Supper Club, Red Rooster’s downstairs Jazz Lounge. This one of a kind night includes a live Bollywood dance perrformance, exclusive auction items, and a chance to be decorated in henna body art.
This event is to benefit Odanadi, an organization that rescues and rehabilitates children sold into human trafficking. Every year in India, young people are lured away from their homes by criminal trafficking networks. Over the past 20 years Odanadi has carried out over 60 brothel raids and brought more than 140 traffickers to justice.
Sponsored by Land Yoga, Red Rooster, Riazul, Iceberg Vodka, and Harlem Blue.
Please show up and support this important cause and perhaps encourage the sponsors and Lara Land to make this an annual event for an important charitable community cause.
There are all different price ranges in which you can contribute according to your budget and what you can afford. No amount is too little, every dollar helps. See the details below.

This week’s quote is a short but impactful and critically important video from Michaela Angela Davis – image activist, writer, conversationalist, editorial director, feminist, fashionista, community servant, and CNN contributor.
No summary of ours could do her poetic words any kind of justice.
Just listen. Reflect. And share with the loved ones in your lives.

“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.”

People say never talk about religion (or politics) because everyone has their own beliefs and opinions and it always ends in an argument. Keeping this in mind, here are some end of the year thoughts on all religions to consider coming into the New Year, 2014:
Catholicism, Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Islam, Confucianism, Buddhism, Seventh-Day Adventist, Mormonism, however you were raised or whatever religion you have chosen as a vehicle to help you on your path to a higher place, should be respected and not judged. So much of religion has to do with location and where we were born into the world, geographically. This is sometimes lost in the bigger picture of things and definitely complicates our political differences.
Lets try together globally in 2014 to learn more about one another around the world and accept each other for who we are as well as our differences. There are similarities with many religions and beliefs that people would be surprised to learn about. It is really quite interesting and empowering to learn about other cultures, traditions and languages. More and more our society is becoming multi cultural and globally in tune. As we continue to grow and understand we can learn that our differences are sometimes more similar than we thought.
Happy New Year for 2014 to everyone here in Harlem, New York, America and everywhere around the globe!
